PowerCMS Missing pages?

Hello,

I just put powerCMS into my local site for development and set the database up. All good so far until after I have logged in. When I chose "insert new content" I get this error!

Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 404

I'm not sure why i'm getting this error message, can you shed some light on this?

Thanks

I believe the issue is related to the:

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/PowerCMS folder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/PowerCMS folder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

settings in your WA_Globals.php file. Make sure you have set those correctly. if you have the cms files in a sub folder then your setting should like something like this:

$WAGLOBAL_localRoot = "/subfolder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your local testing server.
$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot = "/subfolder/"; //relative path to your PowerCMS files on your remote server.

That did it although why does the $WAGLOBAL_localRoot look at the top level localhost structure instead of the site root folder where it's located?

my original structure was /CMS/ this caused the problem:

I changed it to /mydir/CMS/ which is top level locahost and works.

thanks for the help.

PowerCMS uses site relative because it will always use the correct path. this way you could link to sub pages with in a directory with out having to change the link to the equivalent "../../".
